    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco is welcoming some new additions, and they could play an important part in rescuing the world's coral reefs from climate change.For millions of years, colorful coral reefs have provided critical refuge for sea life around the globe... But with ocean temperatures steadily warming from climate change, Bay Area scientists are racing to learn how to rescue the reefs themselves.RELATED: 'Shocking' study on coral bleaching highlights importance of Bay Area research"They're just two and a half days old at this point, and just swimming around in the water column," explains marine biologist Elora Lopez-Nandam, Ph.D., a marine biologist at the California Academy of Sciences.In a lab at the Academy, Lopez-Nandam is keeping an eye on a newborn generation of coral larvae. They're the tiny organisms that will eventually begin secreting calcium carbonate, building the skeletons that will develop into the living coral reefs we're all familiar with. The coral spawn just once a year, and normally, only in the ocean - until recently."So this was the first lab in...
    OAKLAND, Calif. -- A Bay Area design technologist is using 3D printing and calcium carbonate to help restore coral reefs and marine biodiversity that has been impacted by climate change. Coral reefs are currently threatened by pollution, overfishing, and climate change.According to SECORE International, fifty-percent of the world's coral reefs have died in the past three decades. Ninety-percent of coral reefs could die within the next century. "Coral reefs were a really interesting challenge for me. I kind of fell into in a little bit of an accident," said Alex Schofield, design technologist of Objects and Ideograms. "I had a friend who said 'hey, do you think you can 3D print coral?"Since 2019, Schofield has combined his knowledge in computational design and coral research to create complex surfaces of calcium carbonate in his design workshop, Objects and Ideograms.

    A 10-YEAR-OLD boy has been airlifted to hospital after being attacked by a two-metre-long shark at a remote swimming area. The lad screamed for help while snorkelling about 75 metres offshore with his dad in Western Australia, says a tour guide who dragged him "bleeding in to the shallows". 9The boy was taken by the Royal Flying Doctor plane to a hospital in PerthCredit: 9News 9He was attacked by a bronze whaler off Western AustraliaCredit: Alamy The boy's dad had to fend off the bronze whaler with his spear gun to ensure the shark didn't attack his son again, reported The West Australian. The beach, about 1,100km north of Perth, remains closed to swimmers because of continued shark activity in the popular location. It's the second such attack in several months. The pair had been snorkelling at Five Fingers Reed, near Coral Bay, when the boy was bitten by the bronze whaler yesterday, leaving him with a 16cm-long laceration. The attack occurred at a remote swimming spot, only accessible by four-wheel-drive, says WA Today. Warwick 'Wokka' Coles, 48, of Coastal...
    ALAMEDA, Calif. (KGO) -- The USS Coral Sea was one of the three Midway-class aircraft carriers of the United States Navy part of the Battle of the Coral Sea introduced in the latter part of World War II, according to USS Coral Sea. Other members were USS Midway (CVB-41) and USS Franklin D. Roosevelt (CVB-42).The USS Coral Sea began its development during World War II in 1943 and went into commission in 1947. Its hull classification symbol is CVB-43."Her original length was 968 ft., extreme beam 112 ft., maximum draft 34 ft., and her full load displacement 60,100 tons," the USS Coral Sea website says. Along with the two other ships, all three were "the largest warships afloat at the time, the Midway-class carriers were designed to carry an air group compliment of 133 aircraft...three hundred seventy-nine officers and 3,725 enlisted men comprised her initial complement."The aircraft toured and trained all over the world from Virginia to Florida, the Cuban waters and the West Indies, and Istanbul and Egypt among other areas, per USS Coral Sea.Two decades later in the...

    By ADRIANA BRASILEIRO, The Miami Herald MIAMI (AP) — During a scouting mission to check on coral colonies in inshore Biscayne Bay last year, Caroline Dennison and a few other marine biology graduate students found something astounding: healthy populations of brain corals. There were no signs of white spots or bleaching and the vivid yellowish brown colors indicated that the corals were untouched by yet another mysterious disease that’s ravaging reefs along the Florida coast. Even more extraordinary was that these corals were thriving in shallow and warm water right off the seawall at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, near a bustling seaside metropolis. “That was pretty amazing because you wouldn’t imagine that type of coral living successfully in a foot of water, at that location, considering all the issues affecting reefs in the area,” said Dennison, a coral researcher at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. “It was just astonishing, I couldn’t believe it.” What’s protecting these corals? The discovery has opened up a world of research possibilities on what’s killing Florida reefs...
    A man was forced to leave his dead parents behind and swim 3km through shark-infested waters alongside his girlfriend after the boat they were on capsized and threw them all into the ocean.    Bob and Jan Oostryck, in their 70s, were fishing off Coral Bay on Western Australia's mid-western coast with their son Ryan and his girlfriend Anastasia on Tuesday when large waves flipped their 6.1-metre fishing boat at about 2pm.  The young couple made it back to the surface alive. Soon after, the bodies of Mr and Mrs Oostryck emerged.  The elderly couple were out with their son Ryan (pictured) and his girlfriend Anastasia  Bob and Jan Oostryck (pictured) were fishing off Coral Bay on Western Australia's mid-western coast on Tuesday afternoon 'The younger couple made it to the surface,' Pilbara District Acting Superintendent Mark Flesken said on Tuesday. "It's a fairly lengthy swim of about 3km — it took them quite a few hours,  Pilbara District Acting Superintendent Mark Flesken'Shortly afterwards the couple in their 70s came to surface but unfortunately at that point in time...
